Volunteering at Reading

Volunteering options for Reading Festival 2020 will be available here soon, in the meantime, find out what it’s like to be a volunteer at Reading Festival!

Volunteering is a great way to see a whole new side to the festival. You’ll have a great time, meet new people, and help some awesome causes. What do you get when you volunteer?

  • Gain access to the best festival in the world
  • Time to see some amazing acts
  • Oodles of memories

For all volunteering, you’ll need to be 18 or over by the time you arrive at the festival site, have proof to volunteer in the UK (contact the respective volunteer organisation or visit their website for more information) and be available to work the shifts allocated to you throughout the weekend.

Oxfam

Oxfam and Festival Republic have had a very long and brilliant relationship for many years. The appalling stories that have been reported recently doesn’t detract from our working partnership or affect how many millions have been raised from their charitable efforts and how many lives have been saved by their teams who are honourable, dedicated and amazing.

Oxfam is full of brilliant and compassionate people who have been let down by a few appalling individuals in the field and a leadership that failed to root it out. What needs to be focused on now is getting rid of those that don’t deserve the title of working there. The commitments the organisation has made to me gives me confidence that will happen and is happening.
